    I am selling my iBook G3 900mhz on ebay and I want to remove my files and set up the computer for the person who buys it from me. I currently have OSX Jaguar on the computer. Aside from deleting my files what do I need to do with the software? Should I reinstall OSX? Is there something I need to do to remove my profile/log in name for them? If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it.

    I'd suggest a clean install of Jaguar. Then provide your Jag disks along with the computer when you sell it. For the best buying experience it would be nice to make it up to date with all the latest software updates.

    Maybe Zero all data first. ;) :)

    Use your iBook's disks to first, zero all the data on the hard drive, and then reinstall Jaguar.
